Beautiful Day “Mini-Me” Open to Volunteers on Nov. 17

Share

The nonprofit group Beautiful Day is looking for volunteers on Saturday, Nov. 17, for the autumn “mini” version of its massive springtime service event in San Jose.

The group organized six volunteer projects for the upcoming weekend; two are already full to capacity with volunteers. At the two full projects volunteers are making over a local elementary school and caring for the roses at San Jose’s beloved Municipal Rose Garden.

The remaining open projects include:

  • Painting big, colorful playground maps of the United States at four area elementary schools, two in Sunnyvale and two in Santa Clara. There are two shifts available , 8 a.m. to 12 noon, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The project is open to all ages.
  • Cleaning up and helping out neighbors in the immediate area of Westgate Church in San Jose; there are two shifts, 8 a.m. to noon, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The project is open to ages 13 and up.
  • Picking up trash on the area’s freeways on Saturday morning. This is for ages 18 and up only.
  • Adopting families for Christmas. Rather than a specific project this weekend, Beautiful Day is looking for people to help sponsor needy families in the area for the holidays.

For more information on the projects and how to sign up, see the Beautiful Day website. And check out the Good Neighbor Stories Beautiful Day Page, with links to all of our past stories about the group.
